West Ridge neighborhood house tour

The Rogers / Park West Ridge house tour took place over the weekend. It was a glorious spring day, and a big success with over 100 attendees. Thanks to all of the homeowners and volunteers who helped make it happen!
Here's homeowner Van Soil on the day of the tour, showing off drawings by the orignal owner and builder of his home, architect Benedict Bruns. Mr. Bruns built his home on Rockwell in 1919, and was responsible for the design of many bungalows in our neighborhood and throughout Chicago.
